Hot mama: Stylish maternity stores in Vancouver

While it’s a miraculous time, pregnancy can also be an awkward fashion period. A changing body and no desire to drop a bucket-load of cash on clothes you’ll only wear briefly means fashionable options are hard to come by. Thankfully these stores are experts in the pregnant body so you’ll be looking your best during this amazing time.

G028-609 Granville St, Vancouver, BC V7Y 1H2

Leave it to H&M, the masters of trendy, of-the-moment fashions and budget-friendly runway knock-offs, to develop a maternity line. No woman really wants to spend a bundle on clothes they won’t fit into in a few short months. But few women want to sacrifice style either. Which is why the maternity collection here is a fashionista’s best bet. All the fun design flourishes, funky cuts and on-trend colours but none of the buyer’s remorse. Treat yourself to a spree here — you deserve a little retail therapy.
